    I'm a amateur photographer who plans on buying a DSLR later down the line. I'm actually going on vacation this Friday and have been procrastinating on buying a "point and shoot" digital camera for some time now. I'd like my point and shoot and DSLR camera to be the same brand, as I've heard Canon, Nikon and Sony are good brands.

    I've read that the Canon S3 IS is a good camera for point and shoot, but it seems a bit on the larger size. I'd like a more compact type camera that I can put in my pocket for when I go to parties and such, so I'm not lugging a huge camera around. I'd rather have my huge camera be my DSLR and point and shoot something I can whip out and take a few quick shots.

    Price range wise I'm willing to pay upwards of $400 of a good camera. I would really appreciated any recommendations I can get!

    for a pocket camera, either fuji f series or a canon sd series. personally, i have a fuji f10 and love it. the high iso performance is great.
